Aqua STEM Program
The Aqua STEM Program offers exciting, student-ready, integrated STEM units, supported by APW STEM Coaching and in-class presentations from APW Community Coordinators.
The Aqua STEM Program focuses on systems thinking utilizing a water-oriented theme to drive STEM learning. The Systems Thinking approach that APW utilizes teaches students to make distinctions, see part-whole systems, identify relationships, and take perspectives as they think about complex water topics. Most importantly, we are working to provide a language and structure for students to think about their own thinking or reflect, leading to metacognition.
